    T-100 Tritium tube watches - anyone other than Ball and Deep Blue?

    I'd like a diver style watch brighter than Luminox, with really bright tubes and not an overly crowded dial. And a quartz movement since I'd be using it a few times a week on a grab-and-go basis. The Traser P6504 Nautic looks to be in the ballpark, though I don't know about its brightness...

    Any suggestions?

    My Deep Blue T100 came today. I am crazy about the watch already. The tubes glow brightly! For the money, the T100 is hard to beat. Cheers, Bill P.

    I think Deep Blue has found a "winner" with the T100 tubes. As far as getting the word out. I wonder if Oris uses them??

    Check out the TAWATEC E.O. Diver with the green tritium tubes. It's pretty bright and has a very nice, clean face.

    Check out REACTOR Watches and their Never Dark (ND) Superluminova and Tritium luminescent watches. VERY bright and the watches are extremely affordable with most watches in the $300 to $550 price range. They can't be beat.

    Thanks everyone! I will check out that Tawatec and Reactor. I like the Tawatec's dial design better than most "tactical" style tritium watches, it's a little cleaner. I have Deep Blue's 48mm T-100 Daynight Ops Pro, but I'm not crazy about the bezel. The T-100 rocks though, and I'm thinking about their more comfortable 45mm version.

    Here is the 48mm Deep Blue. Sorry no good lume shot. The bezel looks good at first glance. But it is way too easy to turn (a coat sleeve will do it), and the lume at the 12 o'clock position is very tiny, very hard to see. The dial's lume rocks, though!

    Unless I'm going blind, the Traser Nautic looks like it has T100 @ 3, 6, 9, & 12 & T25 everywhere else,,,,,,,a little of both worlds.
